Forecasts

The Way You Dance (5/2), Bailarico (11/4), Affair (4/1), Massini's Trap (4/1), Ocean Gale (4/1), Sheila's Fancy (13/2), Grams And Ounces (10/1), Southern States (10/1), Everlasting Sea (12/1), Jalors (12/1), Patent (20/1), Amadeus Rox (20/1), Agreement (40/1)

Verdict

This will take little winning and a market check on Bailarico is advised given a lack of Flat form and an absence since a point-to-point victory four months ago. The jockey booking also looks positive as it does for AW winner The Way You Dance. Ocean Gale has more to after the race fell in her lap last time and the vote goes to Irish challenger MASSINI'S TRAP who is is a useful staying hurdler who returns to the Flat at a very low level and reunited with a rider who knows how to make him tick. Everlasting Sea is best of the rest.
  1. Massini's Trap
  2. The Way You Dance
  3. Everlasting Sea
